Pros

Looks, fun to drive, last of the corvettes that had chrome bumpers front and back and a real head turner.

Cons

air conditioning doesn't work.

Great Classic Car — This was a great restoration project. Everything replaced or restored. The only think not working is the air conditioning and that's because after 3 years of restoring, when i finally got to drive it, I stopped working on it. I didn't need the air conditioning because I never drive it with the top up or the hard top on. Runs great and drives great. While I haven't been on any long rode trips I would not have any feat on taking this car cross country.

Pros

Chicks Love it !! After paying $800.00 for a 1972 LT-1 with a new motor 4 speed and 1 of 240
made with factory A/C how is there any thing but PROS !!

Cons

The only Con is the 4.11 gears killing gas mileage!! Soon to be fixed with a T56 6 speed Trans.

The Impressions Of This Car Is On The Face Of Men And Women At Stop Lights!! — This car has a 350ci. 375 hp. Vortec 4 speed with 4.11 gears with OBX headers with side pipes. I paid $800.00 for this car as you see it W/O side pipes it is an LT1 with factory A/C YES one of 240 Built with factory A/C. I have done repairs as it sat for 3 years added new carpet and some say it should be repainted as sun damaged the top part of car. I say it gives it that true Barn Find Rustic Look besides paint doesn't make it fast, BUT !! The 383 460 hp. Stroker with a T56 6 speed will !!!!! This car is a BLAST to Drive !!!!

Great First Corvette — Good overall car for your first Corvette as they are the lowest cost units to rebuild or repair. The late 60's to early 70's body style had chrome front bumpers front and rear which were known to take a "hit" in just garage parking never mind anything else, so to have an original mounted set with no rust and undamaged was rare.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fun to drive -- But you really have to drive the old ones to know what I mean!

Cons

Cost of keeping it going......

Old School — This is great week-end fun car, not a good car for long trips. I get a lot of thumbs up with this one because of the old school look and the sound and power of the fastburn 385 crate motor.

Pros

Stunning looks.  Last of the chrome bumper cars.  Turns heads everywhere it goes.

Cons

Doesn't get great gas mileage.  12 mpg, but you sure get attention getting there.

My First Corvette — I bought this car when I turned 25 and my insurance rates dropped. Planned to keep it a couple of years. 41 years later, I STILL HAVE IT, and I've bought 12 more since - plus the 2014 C-7 I have on order.

Great!!!!!!! — Get one they are great!! i have owned the car since 1992 and it has served as a on and off project in the past years. It has helped me make numerous friends and win numerous car shows. I would recommend this car to any one looking to purchase a older corvette.

Best Summer Enjoyment Ever Made By Gm — 350/370 hp, TH400, ragtop, tell me whats not to like? The looks I get when I am cruising. Man, this car rocks! I know the tech aspect isnt what a new Vette is, but I do most all work myself. can you say that about your 2002?

Looks amazing, can't get me out of it ... when it isn't snowing

only if you have bad taste in cars

72 Corvette Convertible — Amazing car so far. So glad I got a 4 speed, way more fun! Near perfect condition. Needs to be painted black and side pipes are in the future. 350 small block leaves you wanting more power ... but that will come.

Stingray — I love everything about this car, the styling, the performance and the busted knuckles I've gotten working on it. It's American! It'll last forever and it's faster than most ALL cars out there, especially Mustangs! It fits me like a glove, drives like it's on rails and is faster than Mustangs. Did I say it was fast?
